Robinson, Robinson, Soon

At https://tallbloke.wordpress.co.uk/2016/07/13/environmental-effect-of-inc... ... you can download a full paper by Arthur Robinson, Noah Robinson, and Willie Soon. The Abstract reads ... a review of research literature concerning the environmental consequences of increased levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide leads to the conclusion that increases during the 20th and early 21st centuries have produced no deleterious effects upon Earth's weather and climate. Increased carbon dioxide has, however, markedly increased plant growth. Predictions of harmful climatic effects due to future increases in hydrocarbon use and minor greenhouse gases like co2 do not conform to current experimental knowledge. The environmental effects of rapid expansion of the nuclear and hydrocarbon energy industry are discussed.

The concluding paragraphs are even more devastating to the Global Warming buffs. For example, there are no experimental data to support the hypothesis that an increase in known hydrocarbon use as in atmospheric carbon dioxide and other greenhouses gases (such as methane) are causing or can be expected to cause unfavourable changes in global temperatures, weather, or landscape. There is no reason to limit human production of co2, CH4 (methane) or other minor greenhouse gases.

The Earth has been much warmer during the past 3000 years without catastrophic effects. Warmer weather extends growing seasons and generally improves habitabilityof colder regions.

As coal, oil and natural gas are used to feed and lift people from poverty around the world more co2 will be released into the atmosphere. This will help to maintain and improve the health, prosperity and productivity of all peoples.

And so on ... and this article is another in a growing list of studies that completely contradict the CAGW meme that has enthralled the politicos and the media in the West for too many years. What started out as an apocalyptic piece of scaremongering as we approached the year 2000AD has gone way past its sell by date. Enough of secular apocalyptic visionary so called science masquerading as prophecy (looking into the future with a crystal ball like a grubby fortune teller in a fairground tent). Willie Soon is a hero.
